Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Hi I have started a small business in NZ that conducts empathetic listening as therapy. No advice will be given or opinions. We are only listening. Do I need a licence or, is listening ok along with client confidentiality agreements as part of the business outline?
JA: Hi. Have you talked to a New Zealand lawyer about this?
Customer: No
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: I've created the business structure and have hired strategic development staff. I have practised on some friends to gain greater perspective
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I want to know the rules around providing this kind of service and also having a website with profiles of therapist, coaches and mentors from around the world

The main issue is privacy and confidentiality, but as long as you have clear guidelines about that, there are no licences or regulations which will affect this

Customer
Are you able to write a privacy and confidentiality agreement for me?

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

Your website should have clear guidence about confidentiality and privacy. We do not offer personal drafting on this site however.

Customer
Is there any issues with having a website that has licensed mentors, coaches etc from around that works as part of my businesses service
Customer
Can I contact you privately Chris outside of this platform?
